This is the time of year when grantmakers in government, foundations, and corporate sectors post numerous opportunities for funding. In theory, this is great news for those are seeking funding for programs and operational costs.

This workshop will cover the do’s and don’ts of applying for grants.

Topics will include:
• Understanding the grantmaking trends in Georgia
• Seeking the right funding opportunities
• Assessing your organizations sustainability
